Art Supplies for Toddlers

Monday, May 30, 2016

With two toddlers keeping them busy and entertained can be exhausting. We spend a lot of time doing 'art' activities. Wyatt loves playing Play-doh, coloring, and painting. And Stella likes eating Play-doh and crayons.

These are a few things that I always make sure we have on hand in our art drawer.

Washable Paint | I love to do crafts with the kids' hands and feet so this is perfect for activities like that.
Color Wonder Markers & Paper | We just recently got into these and they are great for Stella. I don't have to worry about her coloring all over the table or herself. Or eating them.
Crayons | Obviously crayons are a great and easy art option, especially for Wyatt. Stella is still into eating them so they're not as great for her, but she'll get there.
Dot Paint | We love "dot dot paint"! It's such an easy paint option for Wyatt. He doesn't have to monitored to much and it's a relatively clean paint option.
Play-doh | Play-Doh is probably Wyatt's favorite activity. He loves to use plastic cookie cutters to cut out shapes.
Glue Sticks | Honestly, I just realized how well Wyatt can handle glue. I have some pre-cut shapes and I let him glue them on construction paper. 
Construction Paper | We keep lots of construction paper around. It's great for coloring, folding, gluing, and someday we'll get to cutting. 
Markers | Wyatt really enjoys coloring with markers. I love the little pictures that he draws and the stories that go along with them.
Easel | We have this exact easel and it's so great! It folds up nicely and sits on the table when we want it out. It has a chalkboard, white board, and paper.
